I use the juice from a can of crushed pineapple then I add some of the crushed pineapple. This makes a wonderful textured frosting that EVERYONE will love! I've used this recipe for years but this is the first time seeing it on Allrecipes.

Cream cheese soup. My hummingbird cake literally collapsed. Save your time and your money. Honestly I cannot understand the rating system as someone earlier said this is only a glaze not a frosting. Do not waste your time or your resources!

I made a 13 x 9 cake & knew as written it would be too much frosting so halved it. it came out nicely a bit thicker than a glaze but not one that could be swirled either. Which was fine w/me. The only change I did was add a few drops of lemon extract to "brighten" the flavor. I used it on a carrot cake to which I had added crushed pineapple. Very tasty together.

I added the lemon extract Candy Lady thanks for adding that to the reviews (I was going to do that anyway lol). I frosted the top of a lemon pound cake and it was awesome. I like the consistency of this frosting it doesn't run yet it is firm enough for spreading. I will definitely use this again with and without the pineapple juice. In my opinion it's the right amount of each ingredient for what I was looking for of course. Thanks Candy Lady after searching hours for a frosting I finally found something right for me.

For every pineapple lover out there.....this is THE recipe. However I did only add 2 C. powdered sugar along with 1/2 a can crushed pineapple (drained) and about 2-3 TBS. of the juice. This is THE BEST EVER and I could have gotten a spoon and just pigged out! Even better? Coconut all over the cake....TRULY tropical. THANKS for this simple yet so so yummy recipe. by the way mine went on a smaller baked yellow cake with pineapple juice substituted for the water called for

Pretty good but very runny. The pineapple is subtle in this recipe. I would use it as a glaze (maybe a Jamaica Cake?) but definitely would not try to frost cupcakes with it again.

This couldn't be simpler. I even screwed up and added the pineapple juice last (rushing) and it still turned out great. I did NOT add lemon extract as suggested in the reviews. The pineapple flavor came through nicely without it. I halved the recipe and used this on Zucchini Cake II by Joan. Thanks for a simply delicious recipe!
